I perform weddings. Just a taste of what I do.
OPENING THE CEREMONY
GOD BLESS YOU AND THANK YOU ALL FOR COMING.WE ARE GATHERED HERE TODAY FOR ONE OF THE MOST SACRED EVENTS IN THE WORLD, THE JOINING OF TWO PEOPLE’S LIVES THESE TWO PEOPLE STANDING BEFORE YOU WILL BECOME ONE FOREVER AND EVER. MARRIAGE IS NOT A THING WE “ TRY OUT “ TO SEE IF IT WORKS, MARRIAGE IS AN ETERNAL COVENANT THAT TWO PEOPLE MAKE WITH EACH OTHER BEFORE GOD. THE MARRIAGE COVENANT IS PROBABLY THE MOST SACRED COVENANT IN THE BIBLE OUTSIDE OF THE COVENANT OF SALVATION. GOD EXPECTS YOU TO TAKE YOUR PROMISE TO EACH OTHER VERY SERIOUSLY. CONSIDER YOUR MARRIAGE A PRECIOUS AND VALUABLE UNION. HOLD YOUR MARRIAGE AS CLOSE AS YOU HOLD YOUR SALVATION. MARRIAGE CAN BE THE MOST EXCITING AND LIFE-GIVING EXPERIENCE IN THE WORLD, OR IT CAN BE MISERABLE. YOUR MARRIAGE DEPENDS ON HOW YOU LOOK AT IT, HOW YOU APPROACH IT. AS MARRIAGE MATURES AND THE HONEYMOON EXCITEMENT FADES, YOUR PARTNERSHIP CAN GROW COLDER. THE WORDS “ I LOVE YOU” MAY NOT BE SAID AS OFTEN. KISSES MAY NOT BE AS PASSIONATE AS THOSE FIRST ONES WERE. THE HEART DOESN’T BEAT AS FAST AS YOUR LOVE COMES INTO THE ROOM. WHAT TO DO? MARRIAGE IS NOT JUST PEACHES & CREAM FLOATING ON A CLOUD WITH CUPID SHOOTING CUTE HEART SHAPED ARROWS OVER YOUR HEADS. MARRIAGE IS LIFE. MARRIAGE IS WORK. IF YOU WANT A SUCCESSFUL, HAPPY, FULFILLING MARRIAGE, YOU MUST MAKE THE CHOICE TO FOLLOW GODS ADVICE. YOU WILL TO LOVE EACH OTHER. AS THE EXCITEMENT OF THE NEW MARRIAGE COOLS OFF, LOOK AT EACH OTHER AND REMEMBER HOW YOU FELT WHEN YOU FIRST SAID “I DO.” SHARE THE EXCITING DETAILS OF THE DAY OF THE PROPOSAL. THE MOST IMPORTANT MEMORY TO HOLD ONTO FOREVER IS THAT MOMENT WHEN YOU DECIDED YOU WANTED TO SPEND THE REST OF YOUR LIVES TOGETHER. MARRIAGE BETWEEN MAN AND WOMAN IS AN EARTHLY EXAMPLE OF THE MARRIAGE OF CHRIST AND HIS CHURCH. HE GAVE HIS LIFE FOR HIS BRIDE. HE BECAME A SERVANT TO SAVE HER LIFE AND ASSURE ETERNAL HAPPINESS FOR HER. WHEN A MAN AND WOMAN JOIN IN HOLY MATRIMONY, THEY GIVE UP THEIR SELFISH DESIRES. THEY BECOME AS ONE PERSON. THEIR INTERESTS IS NOW FOR ANOTHER. WHAT CAN THEY DO FOR THE LOVE OF THEIR LIFE? HOW CAN THEY SUPPORT EACH OTHER, ENCOURAGE EACH OTHER? IF ONE IS UNHAPPY AND SAD, THE OTHER WILL FEEL THE SAME PAIN. THE GROOM WILL HAVE A LIFETIME TO STUDY HIS SWEET BEAUTIFUL BRIDE. HOW CAN HE HELP HER, GUIDE HER, MAKE HER SMILE? THE BRIDE WILL LIKEWISE STUDY HOW TO MAKE HER SPOUSE HAPPY, CONTENT, AND THE BEST HE CAN BE. HELPING EACH OTHER, CARING FOR EACH OTHER, IS A CHOICE TO BE A SERVANT TO EACH OTHER. LOVE IS A CHOICE. STAYING IN LOVE IS A CHOICE. BEING HAPPY TOGETHER IS A CHOICE. THANK GOD EVERY DAY FOR THE SPOUSE HE HAS BROUGHT INTO YOUR LIFE. PRAISE HIM FOR THE LOVE HE HAS GIVEN YOU FOR EACH OTHER. DON’T TRY TO CHANGE EACH OTHER. BELIEVE GOD TO MAKE THE CHANGES— SO EACH IS MORE LIKE JESUS EVERY DAY OF THE MARRIAGE FOREVER.
This is just a taste of what I put together to make your marriage extraordinary.
It is the best opportunity to bring to people in love together.
Beth El performed our wedding ceremony at Creekside in beautiful Sedona Arizona! We worked with Beth ahead of time to set the stage for a ceremony where the presence of God was felt. Beth is gifted with a beautiful voice and offered to sing during our ceremony. As I walked down the aisle she sang ‘The Prayer’. The birds came down from the trees and the ducks swam over to the waters edge just to listen. Our ceremony captured the true Spirit of God in every word. As Christians it was important to feel the sanctity of the moment. A wedding is such a holy and sacred time to bring together family and friends. Beth prepared a ceremony that was personal and meaningful. If you are searching for a minister to perform your perfect wedding ceremony we highly recommend Beth El !!
We have a discussion on the needs for their wedding vows and make it as easy as possible for them to communicate in a very positive fashion.
I am extremely positive about this.
I am ordained through Joan Hunter Ministries and have the credentials to perform a wedding. I have done two so far and they loved the process. I love doing it plus I am a professional singer and sang THE PRAYER at both weddings. It was so exciting and a treasure.
I have a standard pricing that I discuss with the couple when we have our first meeting.
